Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Maunawili Falls Trail

A little (OK, a lot of) green for you today.

This photo is from our trip to Oahu this past December. I took this photo on the Maunawili Falls Trail. Not to discourage you from taking this trail, but this was the worst hike I’ve ever been on. The trail is mostly deep, sticky mud and tree roots. I was sick, though, and that was the main reason I hated it. My body ached from head to toe with every step. Another downside, once you get to the (unspectacular) waterfall, you will find loads of people there.

Metal Magic 2018



Just booked a hotel in Fredericia, Denmark for July 12-15, and you know what that means.



@Airbourne @COPENHELL

Copenhell announced some more bands for 2018. I’m excited to see Satyricon for the first time in 10 years and Auðn for the first time ever. W.A.S.P. will also be there. I haven’t seen them since they opened for Iron Maiden back in 1985.



#VisitCZ @VisitCZ

Sadly, I won’t be going to Prague this summer. I’m a free weekend short of such an adventure. However, I will be going to Budapest, Milan, the Italian Alps, and the Swiss Alps–all for the first time. Any suggestions for things not to miss in those places?

Happy birthday, Dale Murphy!

My favorite ballplayer as a kid, not on the Oakland A’s, was Murph. I just missed him when I went to Atlanta a few months ago, and I haven’t seen him since I was a teenager, but in some ways he changed my life forever.
